So this is the tagline from a new show on TLC called Big Sexy about plus-size girls who have the highest self-esteem that I have ever seen. These girls are fabulous and they go out and have fun and don't mind being on TV wearing bathing suits and revealing clothing. Even if you do not agree with the premise of this show because you believe it may be glorifying an unhealthy lifestyle, you must give these women props for making big girls look sexy. I need some more confidence and maybe this is just the show that I need. No I am not getting paid any money by the TLC network, but I cannot wait for this show to debut on August 30th. I believe that the show is set in Los Angeles, and I know that that city is known for size 00 being normal. If this show were set in East Tennessee where I live, then I do not think that this show would have the same impact. The public may expect people who live in the south to be bigger because of our collective love for things deep-fried and/or covered in sugar. So watch it or not, but I'm happy that something like this has made it to the television.
